Yesterday was an overcast day and the weather person was calling for rain. I ‘m 20 weeks pregnant and have just recovered from a nasty case of plantar fasciitis. The day before I did a tough kick boxing workout with my awesome personal trainer (Rob from http://www.trainersonsite.com) and I was still sore from it ” I had every excuse there was not to run. But at my usual time at lunch, I hauled my butt to the bathroom and changed into my running gear. Come hell or high water I was going to run. Not even 1 km into my run the sky opened up on me and it poured ” oh boy did it rain! I was running along a trail with no trees ” completely exposed to the rain. But guess what?
I GOT MY RUN IN!
Yes, I got all 5km of my run in … And I felt fantastic afterwards!
I left all of my excuses for not running at the door and went out anyways. Some may call that stubborness, I call it doing what it takes to maintain my health for myself, and for my family.
Get out there folks and do what it takes ” leave your excuses at the door and JUST DO IT! Remember ” You can have excuses or fitness … not both!
